Introduction by A. S. Byatt. The first-ever full-color facsimile edition of one of Jane Austen's early works, with delightful portraits painted by her sister Cassandra, followed by a transcribed version of the text. Sixteen-year-old Jane describes herself as a partial, prejudiced, and ignorant historian, and her gleeful parody hints at the humor she would later bring to her novels. Treats royalty with less respect (and more wit) than a British tabloid. --Cleveland Plain Dealer.
